You're Not You

Life is measured in moments that leave you breathless.


You're Not You

A brash college student and would-be rock singer takes a job assisting her, just as pianist's marriage falls apart.

As their individual quirks begin to rub off on each other, they find themselves facing down regrets, exploring new territory and expanding their ideas of who they want to be.
